Olympic Dreams is following some of GB's stars aiming for the 2008 and 2012 Olympics. The second series transmits in July and August and BMX new world champion Shanaze Reade is involved again
She is only 19 and 'Speedy Readey' has already bagged a wardrobe full of trophies. And what's more, she is a world beater on a BMX bike (recently crowned world champion in China), as well as on the track
In the build-up to Beijing, Reade splits her time between the Manchester velodrome and specialist BMX training in Crewe. The Olympics Dreams team visited one of her BMX sessions
Shanaze loved athletics as a kid, but after watching a local BMX race in home town Crewe, she hired a bike for £1. She was soon hooked. Training begins at the race gates - the start in a BMX race is crucial
In 2003, when Shanaze was choosing her GCSEs, her coach told her BMX had just been introduced to the Olympics and plans for gold began. Not even the boys can keep up with her in training
Australian Grant White started coaching GB's BMX riders in January for the Olympics. White is a former pro BMX rider and said: "We'll polish Shanaze up into an awesome BMX rider - not just a good one"
Shanaze is anything but ordinary. At junior level, she won three world, eight European and five British BMX championships. And in July last year she became world champion in her first senior season
Jumps are a big part of BMX. Shanaze told Olympic Dreams you need to be "very adaptable" in many different locations. "There are many variables to contend with, like the wind, rain, heat and the track"
Shanaze took up track cycling to keep fit and amazingly won a team sprint world title in March 2007 with Victoria Pendleton after only six weeks of training. They won it again in Manchester this year
After her crushing worlds victory in China, Shanaze will be favourite for more glory in Beijing. Shanaze recently said: "My goals won't be complete until I become Olympic champion". Don't bet against it
